#7 / Sins Are Stones

Originally Stephen (my brother-in-law) had this great idea to find an old suitcase and beat on it with a mallet like a kick drum.  We tried this in a parking garage downtown, which sounded phenomenal until we got kicked out by the property manager in the middle of our only decent take.   We had a difficult time deciding where else we wanted to do the Charlotte take.  Uptown didn’t’ seem interesting as the LA and New York shots left the city vibe covered.  So we decided to find something that would be more southern feeling and ended up on my brothers front porch under a giant magnolia tree. Stephen offered up vocals and banjo for this shot, which I think brought a distinct gospel element to the whole situation.  Harmonies, twang, and the front porch always work well together.  What more could you ask for?

  1. Amen. Family harmony is that much sweeter – especially with some twang.

    Suitcase idea reminded me of this picture I saw of Josh Garrels’ drummer at one of his shows:

    Are sections of this songs purposefully supposed to sound like the Christmas carol “O Come All Ye Faithful”?? I can’t stop hearing it.

    “Oh come let us adore Him, oh come let us adore Him, oh come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord”… especially in the very beginning! 😉
